08:30 AM ET 03.02 | The prospective participants in the 2013 Jets quarterback derby will not get Jets fans??? pulses racing. David Garrard, Brady Quinn ... zzzzz. Garrard and Quinn are the first names of quarterbacks to leak out that the Jets might be interested in signing. They are indicative of what Jets fans should expect as the team begins to build its roster -- cheap, cheap, cheap. The Jets are $8.1 million under the salary cap, according to overthecap.com, but a decent chunk of that needs to be saved for draft picks. A team source said yesterday the Jets will focus on building through the draft and add a few low-priced players in free agency.

I seem to recall some guy named Tebow that was all the rage last year at this time. What about him?

Jeff George might be interested.

Tebow doesn't want to stay with the Jets.

So I guess we won 't be hearing any predictions about going to the Super Bowl this year.

If they need a low priced free agent I'd be willing to sign for the league minimum.

Well - they tried crappy quarterbacks and that didn't work.


Maybe this will.

Sad to report - no. Otherwise I'd pull an Uncle Rico and make a tape.

Have they tried Q-Mart?

Jim Plunkett's only 65!!

All the Jets have these days is discount quarterbacks. It's just that they've paid top dollar for these discount quarterbacks.

They already have a discount-quality QB as their starter.

It is not like they have a stable of good wide receivers just waiting for someone who can throw a football.
